Kanellakis Lecture Series Inaugurated

    On 29 November 2001, at 4:00 p.m., the CS Department will host the first annual Paris Kanellakis lecture: Dr. Mihalis Yannakakis, of Avaya Laboratories, will speak on ``Progress in System Modeling and Testing.'' This lecture series honors Paris Kanellakis, a distinguished computer science theoretician who was an esteemed and beloved member of this department. His death in a December, 1995 airplane accident was a profound loss of which we are especially reminded at this time of year. We are therefore all the more delighted now to inaugurate this lecture series in his memory.
